All the superheroes from their respective TV shows will join forces in a mega-crossover event known as Crisis on Earth X where they will battle with an evil version of themselves from Earth X. Supergirl, Arror and the Flash will fights with their respective dopplegangle Overgirl, Dark Arrow and Dark Flash.
Crisis on Earth X’s Poster Review
If you don’t know, Earth-X in the comics is the Nazi-driven universe where the freedom fighters are located and won the war.
If you look closely, the font is reminiscent of Crisis on Infinite Earths. So will it connect the storyline 2024’s crisis event where Flash is missing? I don’t think so.
Like Avengers: Infinity war, the poster shows there will be 15 superheroes will going to debut in this 2-night battle event. Following characters will be seen in action.
- The flash
- The Atom
- Killer Frost
- White Canary
- Mister Terrific
- The Ray
- Black Canary
- Green Arrow
- Wild Dog
Barry Allen and Iris West seem in a wedding dress. And the poster hints that the wedding is going to spoil by Earth X’s supervillains. I think Showrunner has adapted this situation from the comics when Barry Allen supposed to marry another woman, Fiona Webb. But unfortunately, she killed off by Zoom.
Here are some Easter Eggs from the Poster
If you look closely, again and again, Captain Cold aka Leonard Snart will be seen in his sports glasses which is inspired from comics
There is a evil counterpart of the original superheroes but that’s not a question. But who is another archer with the Green Arrow’s costume? That’s the question. Could it be Malcolm Merlyn or Prometheus? One of the class villains, Prometheus was dead in last season of Arrow 9atleast it seems to be) but its like that show could bring him back from the alternate universe.
Earth X’s version of Flash resembles Reverse Flash’s costume, but Dark Flash has one extra lightning symbol on his chest.
The front portion of the poster with Barry and Iris getting married is an homage to “One bridegroom too many’ comic cover where they going to marry each other.
The poster artist is Phil Jimenez who also worked on Infinite Crisis among other titles and now he is working on Superwoman IIRC.
Russell Tovey is cast as the gay superhero, the Ray and he will be going to play the Raymond Terrill’s character in his upcoming animated web series which premiere on CW Seed in 2017. He is a freedom fighter from Earth X. Before that, it seems that he will go to make a live-action appearance in the Arrowverse crossover. So it will be his first appearance in the CW’s show.
Counterpart of Supergirl is no other than Overgirl from parallel Earth where Nazis won the WW II.
“Crisis on Earth X” takes place across two nights on Monday, November 27 and Tuesday, November 28 on The CW. Supergirl and Arrow will air on Monday and The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow will air on Tuesday.
